"Additionally, to have Clarion—a major OEM supplier of automotive electronics to tier-one brands—involved as a sponsor of this year's event, really helps us celebrate all facets of automotive culture," Sanders continued. "Their Clarion Builds program has been an exciting showcase of how passionate automotive enthusiasts can artistically breathe new life into iconic classic automotive designs, and we are thrilled to have their latest build on display at this year's event."
"The entire team here at Clarion is comprised of automotive enthusiasts who truly appreciate the art and passion that goes into crafting vehicles with iconic style," said Allen H. Gharapetian, Clarion's Vice President of Marketing and Product Planning and the Chief of the Clarion Builds program. "We realize that a great deal of talented designers within the industry cultivated their craft at ArtCenter College of Design, and we are pleased to be a part of that development, and that includes participating in the annual Car Classic event that shares and celebrates a great deal of what we also hold dear as a leader in automotive entertainment and safety systems."
The College's annual Car Classic event serves as a reminder that behind every beautifully designed car, there is a story cultivated by an innovative and talented designer. For more than a decade, Car Classic has examined automotive culture and vehicle architecture through the lens of design. More than just another high-profile car show, this popular public event, held at ArtCenter's Hillside Campus in Pasadena, celebrates the very best in automotive design, showcasing the College's strong ties to the industry and honoring many noteworthy alumni.
